It has been really busy around the farm lately. I put the new squeeze chute in and will be running the herd through in a week or two. Pulled my shoulder out in the process. I have been in pain for weeks but have to press on.
Jeanine didn't plant a winter garden, she is petitioning for a pull behind tiller. I think she is going to wait until spring to plant. Besides it's nut season.
I am praying for a little rain to get my winter forage seed germinating, I put down 1050 lbs. of seed, but we havn't had any rain for a couple of weeks. Cow #104 with the white face calved last week and the calf is so cute, looks just like his momma. I moved the cows off the south pasture into the north hayfield while I planted in the south pasture and south hayfield. Soil tests are in from UFL and I will be making my decisions on lime and nutrients.
I need to spend some time in the shop organizing, I think more shelves are needed and I have to get some equipment maintenance done before it gets too cold.
Last weekend we had a bonfire, roasted hotdogs and ate oysters that Tyler, Ami's boyfriend brought. Mimi and Papo were there and it was good family time.
Below is a really cute video of a newborn calf trying to get up to nurse, and one of Christabel petting a new calf that was laying in the pasture. Enjoy!
